The tail lights and licence lamp is all the same circuit, should be a brown wire to all 3, it sounds like its broken in the harness somewhere (especially if the front park lamps work, then the fuse and switch are good). Trace back from rear lights until you find power. Check for pinched wires or cut, or bulges in the wire indicating resistence. Also if you have wired in a trailer plug, disconnect it and retry. Trailer wires are very seldomly wired properly and cause lots of light issues.

What's your question?only breaklights and reverse lights are working


I guess this means your tail lamps for just running are out. Start with fuses, then bulbs, then light switch.

Turn signal hazard lights work but not running lights


The parking lights should be on a different circuit from turn signals - hazard lights. The bulbs usually have two filaments, one for each circuit.
On most models there is a tail light fuse and relay that handles front and rear parking lights.

1991 Park avenue, Tail lights and license's plate light's stopped working turn signal's hazards and brake lights still functional. but no tail lights or license plate lights


Check for Power on your License Plate Light, more than likely you have lost GROUND

Turn Signals, Do the Front Work and the Back don't? If NONE then FLASHER FUSE

No backup lights and no light over the liscense plate where is the fuse located


Depending on your make the fuse panel is in 1 of 3 places....

1. When you open the driver side/passenger side door theres a pannel you have to remove, It may or may not say Fuses

2. Under the dash on the driverside behind the foot pedals

3. Under the hood (drivers side)

also being all the lights that are malfunctioning are in the rear (breaklights, tail lights and LP lights) after you check your fuses if the problem is still there, check the ground cable from the tail lights, if it was pulled/severed/or rusted apart this will have the same symptoms
